  1. Good morning City Moms Blog,

    Our company, TruFluency Kids, is offering a Spanish immersion camp towards the end of the summer — July 29th through August 9th — and are wondering how we might go about getting listed on your website.

    Can you let me know how we would apply for this or if there is a fee for advertising on your blog? Our website is http://www.trufluencykids.com, and we currently conduct after school Spanish classes during the school year at DISD, Lovejoy ISD, Plano ISD and Sunnyvale ISD. We have conducted summer camps in the past at White Rock United Methodist Church and are hosting the camp there again this year. We’d like to get the word out that this camp is available and FUN!
